After the Uconnect upgrade I think it is a little bit better but only drove the truck for two days before I got the upgrade. However it is significantly worse than any other sirius/xm radio I have ever had and like I said earlier, I used these radios since sirius opened for business. Not sure I would not enroll when the trial period ends because I am on the road so much and nothing really compares at this point but if I had a short commute where I could listen to a single or a few FM station I probably would not renew. So anyone who got the new antenna who says it is fixed does that mean only in pretty extreme locations will it cut out. Tunnels, long underpasses etc. Or is it just better than before.
I have has Sirius or XM in last few vehicles. On certain days of the week I have a 120 mile drive. There is a spot behind a tall rock wall that has always caused the two previous vehicle radios to cut out. Other than tunnels or bridges thay have worked great. The 2014 GC before the new antenna would cut out often and everywhere, I would be driving and it would cut out with nothing around to cause it. Sometimes it would cut out 5-10 times on this trip.
After the new antenna it works like my past vehicles. I drove the 120 mile trip and it only cut out behind the rock wall one time . Worked perfect rest of trip.
